Lot of Shakespeare, huh?

I read Frederica within the same time span.

What's At the Altar like? Lucy Maud Montgomery, isn't it?

I guess you liked Tony Hillerman?

The Wouldbegoods. Not familiar with that E. Nesbitt title. Hmm.

I have a copy of the World's 100 Best Short Stories. Chekov's my favorite.

I had a Shakespeare class in London. We read a play and then went to see it. So yes, lots of Shakespeare.

At the Altar is for diehard romantics. I reviewed it HERE.

I only moderately liked Tony Hillerman. I was desperate for reading material and he was available and not too awful. I think I would have liked his stories more if he had been writing from within his own culture.

The Wouldbegoods is a sequel to The Treasure Seekers. It's actually almost, if not just as, good.

Nice! I have read E. Goudge of course!

Also Ellis Peters and Agatha Christie.

Read a lot of Shakespeare when I was doing my BA; really liked it.

Have a great weekend and thanks for the list!

I liked Ellis Peters quite a bit, especially the Inspector Felse mysteries. Her settings are always so vivid.
